Some teachers are really successful. Their students learn and they enjoy their English lessons. Do these teachers have some sort of magic wand? You may call it a magic wand if you want to in the sense that it opens up a new world to learners. Young learners realise they can enjoy learning, which may be a new experience to many. This does not mean games all the time. It also brings with it the idea of reflection and of effort as well, which is compensated for by a rewarding sense of achievement for both teachers and learners. How can this be accomplished with young learners? It can be very easy. One of the key elements is the teacher’s commitment to what he or she’s doing, a strong belief that anybody can learn English, which is absolutely true. Another key element is starting from where learners are, being able to empathise with them, helping them make connections, become aware of how English works. It may take longer, but it’s worth it. We must also remember that we are Educators educating children through English. This means we should pay attention to the cognitive aspect, but to other aspects as well. Bruner says teachers should educate taking into account the three h’s: head (thinking), hands (doing) and hearts (feeling). These three should be present in our lessons. This means involving children as a whole, not educating from the neck up.

One of the best things about travelling, is the wonderful opportunity it presents to meet so many new people and learn so many new things. Longman Argentina and the many dedicated teachers I met truly made my trip a memorable event that will fill me with warm memories for a very long time. But perhaps what touched my heart the most, was returning home to be greeted by several touching emails from people I had met along my way in Argentina. Many, many thanks to all and best wishes for lots of wonderful teachable/ learnable moments.

Eko and Tina 6-8 year olds | 2 levels | Beginners | Emphasis on listening and speaking

Absolutely. One way to achieve this is through the world of magic and fantasy. It’s a world all children love, where there are good and hard times; a world in which they can take on different roles, place themselves in somebody else’s shoes, become aware of how others are affected by what we do. This gives rise to the discussion of values, a must if we want to make a change in the world we’re living in. Going back to the previous idea, all this is easy to achieve if you are a true Educator: information we can get almost everywhere nowadays. A true Educator goes beyond information. A true Educator is the person who will help children transform information into knowledge by using their head, hands and heart.

follow teens’ pace

teaching teenagers has always been presented as a challenge. what’s your opinion about it? It is and it is not. At least not more than teaching any other age group. If you aim to keep learners motivated, they all are a challenge in their own way. and what makes teens a challenge? Well…the fact that teenagers live in a permanent state of flux; as someone has said, in "nobody’s land". Teens keep the pace of the world’s changes. In fact, more often than not, THEY are the source of change. And what bearing does this have on teaching? Teens ask for teachers who can dance at their pace. Not that we have to keep moving up and down. Dancing at their pace means keeping oneself updated and this IS a challenge. There was a time when it was the teacher who made classroom decisions. Not that this is different now but today teenagers are ready to question not only what they are taught but also HOW they are taught. In a time of change and in a period in their lives when most of what they do and what happens to them is transitional, teenagers want teachers who are willing to change. so how does their learning affect our teaching? Teens need immediate answers. Their learning is mainly experiential. They see English as a bridge, a door to new horizons. It’s no longer English for the sake of English. Teens need to learn English and they also need to learn how to learn English and through English so that they can grow socially independent. They ask for new contents and new tools that enable them to cope with the uncertainty and instability of today’s world. This is not altogether new. We’ve been talking about empowering learners for a long time. What teens are telling us today is "Stop talking!" "Start doing!". "Give an answer to changes NOW" and this is the challenge! And I tell my colleagues "to give teens an answer, make your teaching RELEVANT". STOP training them! EDUCATE them!

En guardia

Las oficinas suelen estar ubicadas en zonas propicias a la aglomeración de gente. Es recomendable entonces permanecer en el lugar y no abalanzarse hacia las salidas. En condiciones de pánico es más probable quedar aplastado por una multitud que por un edificio, sobre todo en los que hay gran concentración de gente.


uando la tierra tiembla, nada la puede parar. El desastre parece inevitable y, aunque lo es, mucho se puede hacer para aminorar la dimensión de la catástrofe. En las áreas con predisposición a terremotos, los habitantes han incorporado una serie de medidas preventivas para evitar ser sorprendidos y actuar correctamente tanto en el hogar como en la oficina o en la calle. Estas reglas de comportamiento son básicas y lo ayudarán a sobrevivir


Durante un terremoto

Si se vive en una zona con predisposición a terremotos, es recomendable conocer los planes de emergencia de la comuna en la que vive, planear cómo actuará la familia en caso de un sismo, conocer de primeros auxilios y aprender a extinguir incendios.

Apenas sienta que el suelo bajo los pies comienza a moverse, busque un lugar seguro donde resguardarse, como debajo del marco de una puerta o bajo una mesa. Si llegara a estar en la vía pública, diríjase a lugares abiertos como plazas y parques. Es importante mantener la calma y no dejarse influir por las personas víctimas del pánico.

BOTIQUÍN Contar con un botiquín de primeros auxilios y los planes de vacunación. LUCES Disponer de luces de emergencia, linternas, radio a transistores y pilas.

AGUA Y ALIMENTO Almacenar agua potable y alimentos no perecederos.

AUXILIOS Conocer de primeros auxilios y participar de entrenamientos comunales sobre terremotos.

Saber dónde se encuentran los extinguidores y herramientas como hachas y mangueras dispuestos en caso de emergencia.

Señalizar y mantener libre de obstáculos las vías de escape.

Protegerse debajo de mesas o escritorios para evitar el daño por la caída de objetos.

Dirigirse a lugares abiertos como plazas y parques, en la medida de lo posible, lejos de árboles.


No aproximarse a la línea costera debido a la posibilidad de tsunamis. También evitar los ríos que pueden traer correntadas.

Alejarse de ventanas y balcones.

No usar ascensores: el sumistro eléctrico puede cortarse.

Es fundamental que la casa esté construida siguiendo el Reglamento para Construcciones Sismorresistentes y tener alguien encargado de cortar la luz y el gas.

Al estar en la calle, es importante mantenerse lejos de edificios altos, postes de luz y objetos que puedan caer encima. Lo más seguro es dirigirse hacia parques y espacios abiertos. Si el terremoto lo sorprende manejando, pare y permanezca en el auto y tenga la precaución de alejarse de los puentes.

Seguir las instrucciones del personal de defensa civil.

EN LA CASA Tener amurados objetos que puedan llegar a caerse con el movimiento.

En caso de evacuación la escalera suele ser un sitio seguro, pero puede congestionarse.

ASEGURAR Fijar a la pared o al piso objetos pesados, muebles, estanterías y bombas de gas.

DISYUNTOR Tener instalado un disyuntor y saber cortar el suministro de luz y de gas.



Los materiales tóxicos o inflamables deben estar fuera de peligro de derrame.

Determinar los puntos seguros: debajo de marcos de puertas, o al lado de una columna o bajo una mesa.

Si está cerca de la salida, abandone el edificio y aléjese. No obstruya la puerta.

No prender fósforos ni llamas: utilizar linternas.

No ingerir agua de red ya que puede estar contaminada.

Los incendios son con frecuencia más peligrosos que el terremoto. Pueden quedar fácilmente fuera de control extendiéndose por la ciudad.

Es prioritario resolver las roturas de conductos de agua y gas que se hubieran producido.

Mantenerse alejado de edificios, paredes, postes eléctricos y otros objetos que pudieran caer.

Es bueno tener designado un líder que pueda conducir a los demás. Formar un cordón humano para no perderse y así evitar accidentes.

Tareas de rescate Una vez terminado el temblor hay que comenzar las tareas de rescate. En esta etapa es imperioso verificar si hay heridos y practicar los primeros auxilios. No mover a los heridos con fracturas y no beber agua de recipientes abiertos. RESCATISTAS La prioridad uno es la búsqueda de sobrevivientes después de un terremoto.

No corra por la calle, provocará pánico.

Si se encuentra en un vehículo, pare en el lugar más seguro posible (lejos de edificios grandes, puentes y postes de luz). No salga del auto a menos que sea indispensable.

PERROS Estos animales provistos de casco protector y máscara están entrenados para buscar personas bajo los escombros.

TRANSPORTE Es importante mantener despejadas las vías de acceso a la zona roja para la llegada de los equipos de emergencia.
